Training methods Most training takes place on the job due to the simplicity and lower cost of  on-the-job  training  methods. Two popular types of on-the-job training include the following:  Job rotation.  By assigning people to different jobs or tasks to different people on a  temporary basis, employers can add variety and expose people to the dependence that one  job has on others. Job rotation can help stimulate people to higher levels of contributions,  renew people's interest and enthusiasm, and encourage them to work more as a team.  Mentoring programs.  A new employee frequently learns his or her job under the  guidance of a seasoned veteran. In the trades, this type of training is usually called an  apprenticeship. In white-collar jobs, it is called a coaching or mentoring relationship. In  each, the new employee works under the observation of an experienced worker.
